Introduction to Photography - Sept 2022

21-09-2022 7:30 pm - 16-11-2022 9:00 pm

Each class is delivered on the Zoom platform (commences at 7.30pm and finishes at approximatly 9.00pm) and is live and interactive.

For many years Dublin Camera Club has hosted the best photography course in the city.  Now, we have adapted our course to deliver the same top-class content online, while continuing to maintain the personal attention that has been a feature of our classes over the years and still offering terrific value for money at €120 for the course.    

The course is made up of nine on-line classes delivered live by experienced members of the club.  Classes will allow for Q&A sessions and will also comprise small group practical sessions which will be held mainly outdoors.  We will also allocate an experienced photographer & member of the club as your mentor for the duration of the classes.  You will be able to discuss issues with your mentor, send images to him/her for suggestions as to how to improve and you will have the practical sessions with your tutor.

The course is a general introduction to photography and is suitable for both absolute beginners and people with a little basic photographic knowledge.
